And the winner of the Pig Pageant is…

Posted November 1, 2022


Thank you to everyone who visited Pike Place Market on Saturday October 29th to see the pigs and celebrate our 40th Birthday! It was so special to hear your fond memories of these porcine pals, and make some new ones as well!

We are thrilled to announce that we raised $58,787 in the Pig Pageant! With the matching pool from our board members, that brings our grand total to:

$101,445 …and still climbing!

Wow! Thank you everyone for your generous support. With your help, we are working to help nurture a thriving Market community now and for the next 40 years and beyond.

And the winner of the Pig Pageant is…

Las Flores!

There she is, Miss HAM-erica! In total, Las Flores raised a whopping $11,277 for the Market Foundation and the community’s network of social services. She has won the Pigs on Parade Pageant, and our hearts! READ MORE about Las Flores and her adventures on Bainbridge Island >>>

We also need to give a SNOUT-out to the three pigs who received the most total votes: Swine Street Express, Homer the Trojan Pig, and Pork N’Beans!
